The deadline to enter Guitar Center’s Your Next Record with Keith Urban is less than a month away. For undiscovered artists, this is the second installment of a one-of-its-kind, unsigned artist competition that provides emerging artists the chance to win career-altering opportunities.

“I’m always ready to do whatever it takes to give aspiring musicians the chance to do what they love,” said Urban. “I think we’ve all heard someone whose musical talents blow us away and sometimes all that stands between their garage and an arena is a chance.
